BumWings is a unibody ergo keyboard by tubbytwins. Another board based on the RP2040 Zero controller.
Published January 11, 2023

BumWings – the name isn't meant to be pejorative or insulting – by tubbytwins has an un-split angled layout that has columnar stagger with moderate pinky splay and features dual inverted T-clusters as well as thumb key clusters.

The author has been using a TypeMatrix for nearly two decades, and also an Ergodox-EZ, but had some issues.

So this is my first attempt at designing a keyboard. It works well for me, hopefully others will find it useful or interesting – tubbytwins.

In the repo there are two three variants with the same layout but with supports of different development boards: one for the RP2040 Zero, another one with a Seeed Xiao footprint, and counting.

The Xiao one uses shift registers.
